We have been asked many times:
Why doesn’t Paw Patrol take owner surrenders?
Part of our mission is to help rescue and re-home neglected and unwanted dogs. Paw Patrol prefers to focus on those dogs who are in need of rescue at high-kill shelters where their second chance may never come without our help.
We understand things that come up that make re-homing necessary for owned dogs. However, owned dogs have an owner to speak up for them and help them find a new home.
Abused, neglected, lost or stray dogs do not have that person to speak up for them and help them unless we step in.
With the support of Adopt-A-Pet and the Petco Foundation, you can find a loving forever home for your dog while we continue to save and improve the lives of dogs in our community. We thank you for your understanding!
